System requirements for Qlik NPrinting Server

This section lists the minimum hardware and software requirements for Qlik NPrinting Server.

The hardware requirements listed on this page are for configurations where each Qlik NPrinting component is installed on a different computer. If you install more than one component (for example, the server and the engine) on the same computer, the minimum hardware requirements increase.

Qlik NPrinting Server can be installed on both physical and virtual machines. In both configurations, virtualized applications are not supported.

Server clocks

Clocks of Qlik NPrinting Server and Qlik NPrinting Engine Windows servers must be synchronized within a tolerance of 2 seconds.

A Windows server synchronizes its clock with the domain controller one, so, if Qlik NPrinting Server and Qlik NPrinting Engine are in the same domain, this should assure clocks synchronization. We suggest not to manually remove this option.

If you install Qlik NPrinting Server and Qlik NPrinting Engine on Windows servers of different domains you must be sure that clocks are synchronized within a tolerance of 2 seconds.

Platform security TLS 1.2 must be enabled.

Additional software installed

The following software is installed during the Qlik NPrinting Server setup, unless it is already installed and it must not be removed:

  • RabbitMQ 3.7.7: its service is marked as Qlik NPrinting messaging service. The Qlik NPrinting Server computer cannot have multiple instances of RabbitMQ installed. The Qlik NPrinting Server installer will remove previously installed versions of RabbitMQ.
  • Erlang 21.0
  • PostgreSQL 10.1: its service is marked as Qlik NPrintingRepoService.

  • Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable x64 (12.0.30501)
  • Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable x64 (12.0.40660)
  • Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable x86 (12.0.40660)

  • .NET framework: 4.6.2 or higher.

    .NET framework version 4.6.2 is installed when you install Qlik NPrinting Server, Qlik NPrinting Engine, or Qlik NPrinting Designer. The installation of .NET framework version 4.6.2 requires an active internet connection. If .NET framework version 4.6.2 or later is not already installed on a computer without an internet connection, the installation will fail. You must install the .NET framework version 4.6.2 or later on computers without and internet connection before you install Qlik NPrinting Server, Qlik NPrinting Engine, or Qlik NPrinting Designer.If an internet connection is not available on a computer with .NET framework version 4.6.2 or later already installed, the installer will skip this part of the installation.
